Game Of Thrones fans have said they are terrified of hearing spoilers after the second episode of the new series was apparently leaked online.
The hit HBO drama’s eighth – and last – series debuted last week, and the second instalment airs tonight.
However, social media users reported that the episode appeared hours earlier on Amazon Prime in Germany.
Viewers who watched the first episode said they found that the second started to play after it ended.
Many fans of the programme were angry about the reported leak.
“I JUST SAW SPOILER PICTURES FROM EPISODE 2 OF #GameofThrones AND I’M SO MAD! I HATE THE INTERNET, I HATE LEAKS!” said one person on Twitter.
Another said: “Why must impatient people leak episodes of awesome shows like @GameOfThrones ??? It’s a trillion times better watching them when they are suppose to air….don’t ruin it for us all!!!
“For those who watched the leaked episode of game of thrones, get off this app and stop trynna ruin it for the rest of us,” urged another.
One viewer tweeted: “A lot of effort goes into each episode / movie and all that effort gets spoiled when it leaks online.
“I am dying to watch #GameOfThrones episode 2 but I am not repaying the hard work of every individual involved in the creation of the master piece by watching the leaked episode.”
“People who leak Game of Thrones deserve jail time,” said another person.
However, there were some fans who admitted they were pleased the episode had arrived online early.
“I did it ..I watched it and I am not even sorry !!” tweeted one viewer.
“I am I happy about it?! No ! Would I do it again ..heck Yessss.”
“Can somebody leak episode 3 too?” joked another fan.
Amazon and HBO have been contacted for comment.
